First Avenue Rocks is Birmingham's original climbing gym. Our facility houses 4000 square feet of climbing walls and cross-training equipment as well as a lounge and special event space. We specialize in bouldering, so all the climbing is done on walls that are 8-16' tall over padded floors, and there is something for everyone... first time climbers and experienced athletes alike! Since the opening of Birmingham Boulders in October 2016, First Avenue Rocks has gotten a fresh paint job and a brand new set of climbing holds on the walls, and more improvements are coming in early 2017! If you are a family looking for a recreational rock climbing experience, and especially if you you've got some young'uns wanting to climb, you should head out to Birmingham Boulders. There is lot more for them to do there, and all of our automatically belayed climbing (climbing in a harness, easy up and slow down) is out at B2. If you are a climber looking for the quieter side of the climbing scene with plenty of problems to work on, you will really appreciate First Avenue Rocks. Your day pass at FAR is also good at B2!
